PASADENA>> Concert promoter Live Nation announced Monday that pop power couple Beyonce and JAY Z will play a show at the Rose Bowl Aug. 2 as part of their “On the Run” stadium tour this summer.

The duo will play 16 shows from June 25 to Aug. 5, starting with the Sun Life Stadium in Miami and concluding at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The Rose Bowl show will be the second to last stop on the tour. Other stadiums on the route include the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the Rogers Center in Toronto and Safeco Field in Seattle.

 

A portion of every ticket sold will go toward the Shawn Carter foundation, which helps low income students pursue a higher education, in partnership with #BeyGOOD, which inspires fans to contribute to different charitable causes.

Tickets for all shows go on sale 8 a.m. Tuesday for members of Beyonce’s fan club at www.beyonce.com/tour and Chase credit and debit customers can purchase tickets starting at 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 2 at www.livenation.com.

The Rose Bowl concert was approved last week by the Pasadena City Council as the 18th mayor event at the stadium set for this year. It is one of six concerts that will take place in August and September, with a three night One Direction show and two nights with Eminem and Rihanna already booked. The concerts are part of a new revenue generation strategy by the stadium to replace the unpopular proposal of temporarily hosting a NFL team at the Rose Bowl. Officials also announced a proposed music festival at the stadium that could begin as early as next summer.
